The season 3 premiere of “The Mandalorian” starts off slower than expected
By Ellie Estrema
Unfortunately, Star Wars fans are known for disagreeing. But despite the debate over which movies are legitimate contributions to the Star Wars universe, the true nature of the Force and Hayden Christensen’s acting, “The Mandalorian” is one thing that fans across the spectrum of Star Wars fandom can usually agree on.
Hard-core fans appreciate the depth of worldbuilding and commitment to the Star Wars universe, while more recent fans are learning to fall in ...
‘Is Genesis History: Mountains After the Flood’ digs deeper into the scientific process
By Sophia Monastra
Back in 2017, my mom and I drove to a theater to watch the movie “Is Genesis History.” I remember being awed by the amount of evidence from different academic fields for the Young Earth Creation worldview.
Six years later, Compass Cinema has released the premiere of the sequel “Is Genesis History: Mountains After the Flood.” Familiar faces Dr. Del Tackett, Dr. Steve Austin and Dr. Andrew Snelling are joined by Cedarville University’s Dr. John Whitmore...
The War in Ukraine: One Year Later
by Noah Tang
One year ago, Ukraine was invaded by its larger neighbor, Russia. While most observers expected Ukraine to fall within days, so far the country has withstood the might of the Russian war machine. Ukraine’s democratically elected government has rallied its citizens to stand up to the invasion. And with the aid of most Western countries, Ukraine has retaken half of the territory that Russia initially overran.
As the war continues into its second year, Western governments and ...
Cedarville Students Evangelize at Other Schools
by Anna Harman
On February 13th, the seed of a spiritual awakening was planted on Cedarville University’s campus. President Dr. White announced in chapel, “We have no idea what we’re doing tonight and that’s a good thing because otherwise, nothing would happen. It’s up to the Lord tonight.”

‘The Last of Us’ episode six is a faithful adaptation with a bit of emptiness
By Ben Konuch
“You should be mindful of who you put your trust in. There's a lot you don't know about Joel.”
This is the episode of “The Last of Us” that has both satisfied me and disappointed me the most. Reeling from the emotional highs, lows and thrills of episode five’s intense action, episode six slows down to present the long-awaited reunion of Joel and his brother Tommy.
With it comes new revelations about the past, glimpses of a better life for survivors, and ...
‘The Last of Us’ episode five shows the nightmarish nature of both humans and infected
By Ben Konuch
“Haven’t you heard? Kansas City is free!”
“The Last of Us” episode five starts with an interesting overlap with the events of episode four. We are properly introduced to Henry and Sam and given a glimpse into the way they see the “freeing” of Kansas City. In addition, we see Henry observe Joel’s remorseless execution of the raiders that we see attack him and Ellie in episode four. This is a solid way of delving deeper into the dynamics of FEDRA, the resist...
‘Hogwarts Legacy’ is a fan’s dream come true
By Samuel M Acosta
Writer’s Note: There was, and still is, a lot of controversy surrounding this game's creation and release. This is a review of simply the game as a product and will not factor in the ethics of whether the game should be played. This should be the decision of the individual.
As a kid, I grew up on Harry Potter. I saw all the movies, read all the books, owned most of the LEGOs and played most of the movie tie-in video games. The games’ quality ranged widely ...

CU Students’ Favorite Coffee Shops
by Anna Harman
There are a few coffee spots in Cedarville to choose from, but there are several coffee shops outside of Cedarville that many students find worth the drive.
“My favorite coffee shop outside of Cedarville is Vinyl Coffee. I believe that the quality of the coffee for the price is better than anything you find in Cedarville,” said junior Nursing major, Jy Klein. “It’s better tasting and cheaper. I also love the atmosphere with all of the Vinyl ...
